Ideal Bullets 30812 - When cast is .311 (correct size for .32-20, etc.). Here is a fine series of short range bullets that are well balanced, presenting a good length of bearing and number of grooves for sufficient lubrication. All of the short, sharp pointed bullets of different calibers have justly earned their reputation for accuracy and for small game killing. They do not mangle or tear. It has been proved, also, that bullets of this shape, when longer or heavier than bullets of other shapes, will fly more accurately and keep point on for a greater distance. We would remark also that bullets having a good length of bearing, with lubrication properly distributed, will hold the rifling better and are not so apt to jump the twist and lead the barrel, since they have a greater length of grip.
